Audacity Brew House in nearby Denton, Texas created the No Limits Checkered Past session craft beer that will be sold at all major events at the Fort Worth speedway, as well as through retailers in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. No Limits Checkered Past will make its official debut during the April 7-9 Duck Commander 500 weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
Named after the track’s "No Limits, Texas" marketing campaign, the new brew is described as “a light-bodied Texas steam beer that provides low bitterness and a character that revolves into a toasty, rustic finish that remains perfect for year-round consumption.”
Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage and Audacity Brew House co-owner Scott Lindsey unveiled No Limits Checkered Past by "opening" an oversized, 55-gallon mock can during Media Day festivities. Guests also had an opportunity to sample the craft beer as a sneak preview.
"It's a beer that we can all enjoy," Lindsey said. "Everyone from the most experienced craft beer drinker to first-time tasters will appreciate the flavor. Once fans have tasted it, I know they will be coming back for more."
The beer is carefully crafted with pale barley and lager yeast to provide a light, malt character that is aged for three weeks and cold filtered before being transferred into the signature No Limits Checkered Past can. The 12-ounce can features a diamond-plated look with the iconic No Limits, Texas skull logo adorned at the top with the No Limits Checkered Past logo across a race tire and pistons.
"We could have named any number of brands 'The official beer of Texas Motor Speedway,' but we decided to produce our own with the folks at Audacity Brew House," Gossage said. "We have a certain reputation here in 'No Limits, Texas,' and felt we could best develop a craft beer to represent us. We didn't license some beer brand, we created it. The fans will love it, too."
Beginning with the upcoming Duck Commander 500, No Limits Checkered Past will be sold throughout Texas Motor Speedway. Following the race weekend, No Limits Checkered Past will be available at various local retailers.
No Limits Checkered Past will become the 12th beer on Audacity Brew House's lineup of popular craft beers. Audacity Brew House, which began operation nearly a year and a half ago, has exploded onto the popular craft beer scene after becoming Denton's first brewery when it opened in 2014. The company, which operates out of a 5,000-square foot warehouse with adjacent taproom, will expand to include an 8,000-square foot venue later this year called Audacity Brew House at Travelstead. The new facility, located near the historic downtown Denton Square, will include a restaurant and outdoor entertainment area. The increased space will allow brew master and co-owner Doug Smith to brew up to 10,000 barrels annually.
